But the buyout fee is several thousand dollars and they won’t accept multiple payments... if we could afford that, we wouldn’t be moving… Is there no such thing as a hardship action for Ohio?? Is there any kind of legal help because of the current pandemic with so many people losing their jobs?
I am assuming that you are currently in a lease or rental agreement. If an eviction action is filed for non-payment (as you are probably leaving regardless), then you can request a stay based upon COVID and the CARES Act. The CDC now requires you to file an affidavit that you have attempted to...Read more »

Fast forward a year and now that 12 month period is up and I never received a renewal... Read more »

I have been the co-owner of my Mom's banking and checking account since April 5, 2015. And, I used the... Read more »
Interesting question. You certainly cannot be responsible for repaying any money that you spent on behalf of your mother for her expenses like medical expenses, nursing home bills, taxes, insurance, etc. One tricky question is whether you are liable to the estate for payments that you made to...Read more »

The court-ordered parenting time must be followed. Informal changes between parents can lead to this kind of trouble. If parents make other arrangements, but then plans change, then the court-ordered time must be followed, and if not, the parent who is not complying can be held in contempt.

If the will cannot be found, and if he did not have a surviving spouse, then his estate will be divided among his natural and adopted children, but step children don't share. If the will can be found, and if it nominates you to be executor, and if the will is submitted to the probate court,...Read more »
I'm an international scholar who is renting an apartment. I'm seeking guidance to see if there is any law that protects me since I feel at an utter disadvantage for not knowing the law.

Install of 4 ft fence around my prop. The subdivision in which I live has an HOA. All requests of this type need HOA approval. Based on the HOA gdlns, there is to be a 15-inch (at least) variance, in this case, at the back of the property (for utilities, emergency access, etc). (I believe city... Read more »
City zoning always has priority over HOA rules. It is unlikely that the existing fence will be required to move. A boundary survey might be required to establish and mark the boundaries and required setbacks. Talk to both the city and the HOA management company about the required setbacks and...Read more »
We both the house from his brother and have a title to the house. The house came with the land that house directly sits on.

Did your custody order allow you to move out of state with the child without the father’s agreement or court permission? That would be unusual. You can file for contempt in Ohio in the county where the agreement was filed.
My dog got out of my yard while I was at the store , he was taken to a shelter and when I called and scheduled to pick him up I was not made aware of a time limit that would give them ownership.. they then call me the day after he supposedly became their property to tell me he would be nuetered , I...

In Colorado it’s 5 days, so it’s probably something similar in Ohio. I guess they should have told you, but they’re not really required to and most laws operate under the assumption that the owner will come immediately. Maybe they’ll let you re-adopt him

She won't listen, so the only option is for you and your brother to hire an expert probate lawyer, and probably file your own action to be appointed and to remove her. At a minimum, you need to keep good notes of what she is doing and need to meet immediately with your own lawyer. Most...Read more »

No news is bad news. You need to communicate with the executor to see where the process is. The executor may be strategically waiting to open the estate. Or, there may be nothing going through probate, so it wouldn't matter what the will says. If the executor is being evasive (like...Read more »
